Mrs. Felicia Burkhalter

Hello, my name is Felicia Burkhalter and I am very excited to be your child's 1st grade teacher.  The 2023 school fall session will begin my 11th year teaching, and my 5th year teaching here at Shields Elementary in Red Oak. I am looking forward to another great year!  I am a life-long-learner.  I received my Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies Degree from Texas A&M Commerce.  

I moved to Red Oak in 2011 along with my husband and youngest daughter, Brianna, who graduated in 2013 from Red Oak High School.  My husband and I are now empty nesters!  We have 4 daughters, 1 son, and 11 wonderful grandchildren. 

I love to teach!  Teaching is my passion and vocation.  I get excited about expanding knowledge and developing my students.  Moreover, I truly believe that if you do  what you love, you will never work a day in your life.  To that end, I believe in being a good steward of whatever is placed in my hands.  In this case... your precious children.  My objective is ensuring their educational growth in a positive and nurturing environment. 

In my spare time, I love creating projects and activities for my students.  I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, bowling, watching movies, and reading.

As a parent or guardian, you are the most important person in your child's life, and I look forward to working with you to ensure your child's success!  Lastly, I am very thankful for the opportunity to serve you and your children in this capacity.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.  My conference time is 9:30- 10:25.  I am also available to speak with you before and/or after school.--6
